This years Eden Camp Veterans Parade took place on Sunday 10th September, this
is the largest annual Veterans Parade held in the North East.
North East Branch, North Yorkshire Branch and Yorkshire (South) Branch
represented the Royal Air Force Police Association for Yorkshire and the
North East at this years event.
The weather for the day was blustery and
threat of rain constant. The rain came as the parade was on the Square and just
as the Padre mounted the Podium - had he offended his boss? -
Vets stood firm throughout.
Campaign Medals indicated the seniority for many
of the Veterans and the Croix de Guerre
was much in evidence and indicative
of 73 years and plus.
The attached photographs taken in front of the Eden
Camp Memorial though not necessarily
in a particular order portray those who
took part. Roger Bishop, North East Branch. Arthur
